I dont have a FLAGG, so I decided to try my hand at making something close to the scale that the original was done. First, I always hated the fact that you could only launch one aircraft on deck, it should be two. I love the working elevator, not sure how I will do it, but I will think of something. Considering the fact that this is a playset, I took liberty with the landing section, there is nothing on the port side other than edge.
9 feet long x 4 feet wide (at widest) and x3 ft w (at least widest-front and rear)
Granted its a bit bigger but it allows for more room of aircraft and accessories like flight deck equipment.
I plan on making the flight deck this weekend if I have time, if anyone knows where I can pick up an old FLAGG superstructure/island PLEASE lmk
If any of you have suggestions, please post them. Please disregard the MAC n Cheese boxes, I needed to have a physical reference, there is only so much I can do on paper sketching this thing. I had made a few tries at a newer looking flight deck design but I decided to stay more close to the original, in spirit anyway. I want to see how the skystrikers do on it later.

Nice layout! How about an elevator for the rear too?
